  1. Cornwall CD-BR

    Also to the OP, the "S" in the serial number means they were built in 1978.
  2. Cornwall CD-BR

    @Jirachi, Yours don't appear to be decorators. What we all consider decorators look like the OP. However, CDBR Builder has pointed out that the cornwalls without the mitre'd corners were also considered decorators, I believe. Since he built them, I'd take his word for it, and I don't doubt your labels say CDBR... but for everyday discussion, decorators have a wooden front with no grill, while anything with a grill counts as not a decorator version. Coincidentally, I have 1980 cornwalls without mitre'd corners, and they just say CBR (rather than CDBR).
  3. 2 MCM full sets - Maine

    No Affiliation. https://maine.craigslist.org/ele/d/klipsch-mcm-2-full-sets/6365957675.html I don't have the space! I think it says $4k takes all ($2k per set). full bunch includes 10 amps and a bunch of horns. Also, a different seller (and probably should be a different alert) has some speakerlab Khorns for $300: https://maine.craigslist.org/msg/d/speakers/6351512752.html
  4. Pair of Cornwall II for sale

    @-js- Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but they were made in both orientations in that time period. The old Cornwall II label in the '70's was used to indicate the verticals, while the regular Cornwall label was for the normal horizontal orientation. Jim was the only one to point out the mixed pair. Sometimes the most obvious things get overlooked And just FYI for any who read this post, the new Cornwall II label from the '80's (with banana plug terminals) indicates the new innards rather than verticals.
  5. Preamp Owners....What Are You Using?

    I'm using a Marantz AV7005, mainly for home theater purposes. Paired with Marantz monoblocks and Emo amps.
  6. 4 cornscala's Maine (pic has Jubs as well)

    No Affiliation. The picture of the set up is impressive, although stacking the cornscala's might not be the best arrangement. https://maine.craigslist.org/ele/d/custom-speakers/6311709877.html
  7. Klipsch Cornwall Speakers

    I could be wrong, but those look like Walnut Oil, which could use a fresh coat of oil, and which would really make the finish pop. (tags would read C-WO)
  8. Klipsch Corwall cd-br for sale UPDATED!

    And some nice laser badges.
  9. Pair of Cornwall II for sale

    Not interested, but I can put my thoughts out there. I don't know anything about prices in CA, but may raise the price a little? Having them covered in a different wood probably brings the price down (and makes them heavier and even harder to move around). Assuming all the internal stuff still works, I'd put it in a price range of $300 on the low end to $1,000 on the very high end, even for CA.
  10. Khorns Ad - just for your reading pleasure

    I don't want to imply that these aren't nice (they look very nice, with a lot of work put into them), or that they aren't worth the price, but who on craigslist wants to read a manifesto about speakers and personal history: https://maine.craigslist.org/ele/d/klipsch-klipschorns-showroom/6267347998.html Also, some of the typos were amusing, such as painting them "satan black." I'm not sure I'd like that color anywhere around me. If Richard is a member here, thanks for the smiles, and great work on the speakers.
  11. Refurbish Black La Scalas

    From experience, trying to get all the paint off isn't worth it. I am trying to do a mirror finish with black rustoleum, and in hindsight, Duratex would have been an easier choice.
  12. First set of Cornwalls Ever?

    This guy has had them on Craigslist for a little while as well, and with a lower price...but it is still a too high price IMO on Craigslist. They're about 40 minutes from me, but I don't need a 3rd pair of CWs. EDIT - He's dropped the price to $800 on Craigslist, which is more reasonable: https://maine.craigslist.org/ele/6108317354.html
  13. Khorn Alert Chicago!!!! Pics added

    I like how it lists "condition: excellent" when the (not very detailed) pics show a bunch of scrapes/dings. I guess those add value and condition points.
  14. Strange DIY "Klipsch" Speakers with Altec + Khorn components

    I was thinking the walnut stained birch cabinets had a cool pattern to them. Then I looked at the price he was asking and fell out of my chair.
